New week, new party

This week's vagina theme party is... contraception! Possibly the most frustrating, demoralizing, and compromising vagina-related activity I have to deal with. At least once a week I have a discussion with someone about the lack of appealing birth control options, and our intermittent despair over this. Between my friends and I, we hate the pill, the shot, condoms, withdrawal, rhythm, diaphragms and caps, and are about to find out whether the IUD is worth hating.

The experimental birth control method in which my friends and I perceive a glimmer of hope is a male method called RISUG (Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance), in which a non-hormonal gel is injected into the vas deferens (the thing that would be cut in a vasectomy) to kill sperm cells as they pass through. It can last over ten years, and can be reversed any time with another simple injection. The techniques, research and concerns are explained very well at the rather excellent malecontraceptives.org site (they even have tips for activism to help new methods see the light of day).
